Geez who would have thunk that attending a support session would entail voluntarily listening to the hardships of others and offering support. Should have kept your mouth shut. I hate people who just talk for the sake of talking.

Kinda kinda!!! Damn right he deserves it. Imagine being that guy when someone falls asleep while you are talking about a traumatizing event and someone makes a rude comment like that.

I'll get downvoted into oblivion. I'm sure people will think I'm terrible. but just because something is traumatizing for someone, it doesn't mean it is for someone else, or interesting at all for that matter.my house burned down a few years ago, it was extraordinarily traumatizing for me. I don't blame others for not caring, as it didn't happen to them. it didn't effect them.

That doesn't give the person a right to be disrespectful about it. The least they can do is grow up and listen to the story and show some respect regardless on if they are interested in it. By going to that support group, he is putting himself in a position where he has to listen to others. That's what he signed up for. And I'm sure everyone else gives him the respect to listen to whatever he is in support group for. The least he can do is show some empathy and respect and listen to others.

I suppose it's possible that O.P. has an issue they are there for but haven't yet come to terms with. Perhaps they were made to go there for something, but do not feel themselves that they need to be? I dunno, I'm trying to justify something that possibly can't be justified.

You do realize some people have to go if they want to avoid jail for drugs and stuff. plus it wasn't as they went to say that on purpose. many people fall asleep.

Wow, with friends like you who needs enemies? I understand an occasional joke here or there but to constantly joke about it and have a nickname mocking his disability is incredibly rude.

How about you get your leg cut off and then try to deal with the emotional, physical and mental pain of it, while having jackasses like yourself saying shit to make it even harder. Don't comment on something you know nothing about. Stop being ignorant, or don't comment.

i used to be 320 pounds, people make fat jokes all the damn time. you can whine and bitch and get upset about it and let it get to you and ruin your day. feel like no one should ever make such jokes or comments like that, ever. or you can take control of your life, feelings and emotions and not let anyone ever decide how you're going to feel. never give anyone that power over you. especially just with words.

#29. The reason this guy is in a support group and told THAT as his story of hardship makes me think he's not quite at the point of accepting it yet let alone laughing at it. People deal with shit in deferent ways

Wow, its almost as if #26 is her own person and also dealing with something none of you apparently know anything about? Having a friend with an issue is not the same as HAVING that issue. Being overweight can be fixed on your own. It may be difficult, but it can be done. Do you expect her to grow her own leg back? No? Then let her cope however she pleases.

Thank you! I understand that a lot of you are thinking that I am a whiny bitch but I'm not trying to be. Some things people say just really gets to me. It's hard to keep my cool and stay quiet when I see people making fun of someone who is in a situation they know nothing about.

What if he's there for support for traumatizing nightmares that cause him to lose a lot of sleep, making him tired all the time. Or what if he has a sleeping disorder.
